The Sweet Spot Between Fun and Insanity is the 2018 BMW M550i xDrive’s Stomping Ground

These days, many BMW models can be had in three flavors. There’s the Series models at one end of the performance spectrum, and the M-badged ones on the other. In between it’s the M Performance models like the new 2018 M550i xDrive, which offer a great introduction to the world of the best of the Ultimate Driving Machine.

The M550i xDrive is a fine example of this. With all-wheel drive, it offers prime road grip, while a twin-turbocharged V8 with 456 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque help it slot cleanly between the 335-hp 540i and 600-hp M5. With all-wheel drive in hand, it’s plenty quick—hitting sixty in just 3.9 seconds—with its speed topping out at 155 mph. The M550i also has a feature called Sport Plus, that makes the accelerator quite a bit more sensitive, while firming up both steering and suspension to best deliver the thrills.
